Senses of Time: Video and Film-Based Works of Africa
LOS ANGELES, UNITED STATES  •  Los Angeles County Museum  •  20 December 2015 - 2 January 2017

Our hearts beat to the rhythms of biological time and continents drift in geological time, while we set our watches to the precision of Naval time. Time may be easy to measure, but it is challenging to understand. Five leading contemporary artists of Africa explore temporal strategies to convey how time is experienced—and produced—by the body. Bodies climb, dance, and dissolve in six works of video and film, or “time-based” art. Characters and the actions they depict repeat, resist, and reverse any expectation that time must move relentlessly forward.

Senses of Time invites viewers to consider tensions between personal and political time, ritual and technological time, bodily and mechanical time. Through pacing, sequencing, looping, layering, and mirroring, diverse perceptions of time are both embodied and expressed.

The Younger Generation: Contemporary Japanese Photography
LOS ANGELES, UNITED STATES  •  J. Paul Getty Museum  •  6 October 2015 - 21 February 2016
Beginning in the 1990s, a number of young female photographers in Japan garnered attention by making provocative self-portraits and intimate images of domestic scenes. Challenging the status quo of the male-dominated photography community, their work prompted the controversial and reductive term onnanoko shashin, or “girl photographs”.

This exhibition showcases the versatile and complex work of five midcareer Japanese-born artists who emerged in the wake of “girl photography”: Kawauchi Rinko, Onodera Yuki, Otsuka Chino, Sawada Tomoko, and Shiga Lieko. Mavericks in their field, these women continue in the tradition of such pioneers as Ishiuchi Miyako, whose work appears in the companion exhibition Ishiuchi Miyako: Postwar Shadows.

In writer/director Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight, set some years after the Civil War, a stagecoach hurtles through the wintry Wyoming landscape. Bounty hunter John Ruth (Kurt Russell) and his fugitive Daisy Domergue (Jennifer Jason Leigh) race towards the town of Red Rock where Ruth, known in these parts as “The Hangman,” will bring Domergue to justice. Along the road, they encounter Major Marquis Warren (Samuel L. Jackson), a former union soldier turned infamous bounty hunter, and Chris Mannix (Walton Goggins), a southern renegade who claims to be the town’s new Sheriff. Losing their lead on the blizzard, all four seek refuge at Minnie's Haberdashery, a stagecoach stopover. When they arrive, they are greeted by four unfamiliar faces: Bob (Demian Bichir), who’s taking care of Minnie’s in the owner’s absence; Oswaldo (Tim Roth), the hangman of Red Rock; cow-puncher Joe (Michael Madsen); and Confederate General Sanford Smithers (Bruce Dern). As the storm overtakes the mountainside, our eight travelers come to learn they may not make it to Red Rock after all…. Filmed and presented in Ultra Panavision 70mm. Nominated for 3 Academy Awards, including Best Supporting Actress (Jennifer Jason Leigh), Cinematography (Robert Richardson) and Original Score (Ennio Morricone).
